You have serious strength goals.
You want the ability to design multiple training cycles and get long-term insights about your training data. You might be thinking about or already competing in powerlifting.
You have a desire to understand your training in more detail.
Perhaps you’re seeing progress already, but don’t know the factors that lead to success. You can track your data for a few months to see key training insights.
You want to track and record daily workouts.
You know your workouts needs to become more specific, and want to start implementing tools to understand what’s working and what’s not.
I have a classical Western approach to volume and intensity as it relates to my macro cycle. Ideally I like to program on 12 week blocks - I have found that to be optimal from both a preparation and peaking aspect. The first 6 weeks I focus more heavily on volume, and the last 6 weeks approaching the meet I focus on intensity. As the volume drops, intensity should increase. I believe a massive volume drop (50% or more) should be achieved in the last two weeks to taper appropriately.
